My Hero is gone

Postby HALBUDD » Sat Dec 12, 2015 11:21 pm



I lost my Dad this past Thursday he was my hero and I will miss him. He was my teacher in many ways like how to build,wield, and everything from cars to plumbing he could do it all. He was a Korean war vet and the best father a son could ask for. I took him on his last hunting trip to Nebraska this past Oct. and He was able to see his friends out there for the last time. He was 86 and had a good life and was Loved by all that knew him,and I will miss him.-----------------------------Hal

Heros are hard to come by today.

I'm glad you had yours.

Prayers to you and your family in these times. :cry:

Thanks guys, he was on heck of a man he reminded me of john Wayne from the move the quite man. He always told me he should have been born back in the wild west days. He loved going out west where everything was so open and you could see for miles.--------------------------------Hal

Lost my Dad 18 months ago. We lived two Provinces apart and I didn't get to see him that much because of work and the distance. Now that he is gone I find myself thinking him quite often. Condolences my friend sorry for your loss

Hal, I just saw this post man,, so sorry, mine is gone too, but your father was a much better father it sounds like, although mine worked on motorcycles in his younger life he never shared with me any of his knowledge, I am so glad yours did, I guess mine was too busy to show me anything, had to learn everything on my own....I sure do show my daughters stuff though... I was still sad when he passed, I am so sorry for your loss Hal....all you can really do is be the best father you can be now..

Very sorry to hear about your dad's passing Hal. Sounds like he was a real good guy, and very proud of his son. That son took him hunting, and he saw all his hunting buddies, and everybody was together, and you'll never forget that. Good for you.

Sorry to hear that. It's good that you were able to share a last hunt together. Definitely treasure that and all the things he taught you and the stuff you shared.

Sorry for your loss. I have not had to endure that trial yet, but its just a matter of time. I kinda have 2, the one that raised me is the one I call Dad. But I do have a decent relationship with my father. I'm sure neither will be very easy.
I lost my mother 10 1/2 yrs ago, she was 49 at the time. Her father a year before that.
Time sorta heals, but the memories stay. Funny how you lose track of the 'bad' ones tho.

Be grateful of time shared with those you love, both present and in the past.

Sorry for your loss Hal. My dad passed 13 months ago and was also a Korean war vet. That's great that you father shared all his knowledge with you and that you got that hunting trip in last Oct. I also hunted with my dad and made lots of fond memories. Those are the ones we remember, the good times. He is gone but I still fall back on his strength. (What would dad do?). Makes me a better man, husband and father. Prayers sent your way.

I want to thank all you guys for your kind posts,my dad had a good send off. I had the louisville patriot guard do a flag line. The American legion did the 21 gun salute and the soldiers from Fort Knox folded the flag and gave it to my middle brother as I will be keeping all his medals and awards. I did not know this before but he had received two purple hearts. I sure will miss going to Nebraska to hunt with him. Maybe next year Ill take my son back out and see all our friends.---------------------------------------------------Hal

yes he did have a good send off. very nice of all the military personal and others that honored him. good idea of you taking your son out hunting. start a new tradition with your son. im sure that in itself will bring back fond memories of you and your dad.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. It sounds like your dad and mine had similar likes. Hunting, fishing, camping and the wide open spaces of the west. Dad also thought he was born a hundred years to late.
Dad is still here physically, Alzheimer's has taken his mind and I miss the man he was.
Your father is gone but he lives on in you. Men are the reflections of their fathers. The good and not so good.
Next time you look in a mirror, look hard. He'll be there.
I have yet to go through what you've gone through but it won't be long.
Maybe some day we'll share a campsite in Montana, Colorado, maybe Wyoming or Utah and we can talk about our dads.

We're lucky to have our heroes as fathers.
